Forbidden Dreadnought SLX 2022

Built from the same all-carbon chassis seen throughout the range, but in a more wallet-friendly configuration, the no-compromise Dreadnought SLX packs enough firepower to pummel the opposition into retreat. Upfront, the 170mm travel, Charger 2.1 equipped RockShox Zeb Select + fork is paired to perfection by a custom-tuned Fox X2 shock. The suspension is amplified further by the Trifecta system, decimating square edge hits for breakfast, all thanks to its 100% rearward wheel path, while simultaneously eliminating unwanted drivetrain forces with ease. Delivering a consistent ride experience across the size spectrum and an unrivalled level of balance and composure, our One Ride geometry helps to differentiate the Dreadnought even further from the competition. A bike that likes to play, but not by the rules, the Dreadnought SLX thrives in environments once the reserve of downhill thoroughbreds.

Inspired by the terrain that surrounds their home on Vancouver Island, even naming the company after the Forbidden Plateau - their local riding spot - should go some way to explaining their intentions as a mountain bike brand. The year-round riding conditions they experience here coupled with the sheer variety of trails on offer have given them the ideal location to design and develop cutting edge mountain bikes.

Established in 2019 by a growing team of industry veterans with a single product - a trail bike, the Druid - and a single-minded, no holds barred approach to bicycle design. The Druid’s arrival on the scene certainly set the tone for a brand that is not prepared to accept the status quo or adhere to the whims of mass-market trends.

Small, agile and free to pursue the ideas that would ultimately lead them towards truly unique products that not only define them a company but who they are as riders. This approach has also allowed them to really focus on ride quality and performance above all else, be it through suspension, geometry, materials, or construction techniques.
